The career Center is swimming in money now. They have $22,000 per pupil now. They have less than 900 pupils. They are accumulating about one million $ per year. They want to renovate so, they asked all faculty, staff and BOE the questions. " If money were no issue, what would you like to see added or renovated in this career center?" They put everyone’s wish list into a plan and it added up to $46 million, they then quadrupled this to make a 3 mill levy then added a .5 mill safety factor. If this fails they are able to come back and say we reduced it to 3 or 2.5 or 2 and still raise the amount they needed times three to build a enormous facility for 900 junior and senior high school students. What they have also done is to make an adult ed center that is partially paid for by taxpayers. Now Sinclair and any other adult ed center cannot compete with the career center prices because you the taxpayer are supplementing the adult ed at the Career Center. The adult ed part of the careert center is supose to be self funded but did you know you pay for its admin, its facitity, some of its faculty and supplies. So the adult ed is not only supplemented by tax dollars it is also accumulating money in an account we do not get to see.Increased Taxation coming to Warren County in November?

Everyone should ask them for their five year forecast and you will see an accumulating balance. The five year forecast shows a $15 million surplus, when the whole annual budget is only $14 million, they have a whole years worth of surplus and thye wnat more. Lets talk insanity. Why is 15 million surplus not enough to renovate?
